iPod Touch

I got to play with one of these babies today:

It's slim, it's sleek, it's sexy... But my fingers are too fat to use it :P Well, for typing things anyway. T'was surprisingly difficult for me to type out a URL. Mm, overall impression? Nice, but... it's 200 squids for a puny 8GB and not that many extra features. How often am I going to get a free wifi signal? If I'm at home, I'm going to be using my Mbp. The 160GB iPod Classic is much better value at 229 squids. Yet it irks me to get the Classic since it's going to be obsolete... I'm currently lugging my Mbp to work, however, since the wifi got denied on my level, the Mbp has become an oversized mp3 player and calendar. It's pointless working on documents on my Mbp since USB sticks are blocked, and I can no longer transfer files to my desktop via email. I'm a little tired of taking my Mbp to work just for music :P Hrmph, must think about it.

The new Nano is, as I thought, pointless. Definitely not as sexy as the original version either.

Daliborus - I won't be able to dial on the iPhone! My fingers are too fat :) I'm like Homer:

"The fingers you have used to dial are too fat. To obtain a special dialing wand, please mash the keypad with your palm now." :(

Y* - MBP = Macbook Pro :) It's my laptop!
